Cupping is a traditional therapy used to treat illnesses and imbalances for over 2,500 years. Cupping can be without fire too! It’s a quick and painless was to bring circulation to the area of discomfort. The skin may turn different shades of pinks, reds, and purples, but clears away within a few days to a week. We've seen great progress with our clients and they really enjoy being cupped! I use suction medical cupping, great for injuries!
Thai Massage is an ancient healing art and one of the five primary roots of Traditional Thai Medicine. It is perhaps most known for its beautiful passive stretches, compressions, and range of motion. We have dived right into this form of massage and have been using it more regularly in our practice! Traditionally Thai massage is on a soft mat on the floor fully clothed! This can be a fun dynamic way to open your body up and ease your stiffness!
Update 2023: Thai is done on the table with Ashiatsu.
Breathe Work Breathe work is a technique involving your breathe. There are different ways to breathe through your nose and mouth. I guide you through this process in the massage session as you feel into your body. Trauma, emotional and mental stress, false belief systems, physical distress, environment stress, and other blocks to our personal growth can be stored in our bodies and breathe work helps stimulate our nervous system to release and relax. Energetic healing and breathe work takes a holistic approach that looks beyond the physical to manipulating the subtle energy systems (meridians, auric bodies, chakras, nadis) where the cause of the dis-ease can be located and this impacts our ability to function at our full potential. Energetic healing facilitates the healing process by clearing blocks in the energy fields, repairing and rebalancing the energy so that the body can move to its optimal level of balance from where it is able to access its inherent ability to heal itself. Audra uses breathe work in every massage sessions.“The more I use Breathe work and energy healing, the more I feel connected and very present with my client. The more we can tune into each other and deeply relax into the space for healing. If we can go underneath the physical pain and tap into our emotions, that can be a place of great healing.” -Me!
Ashiatsu In an Ashiatsu session, the client relaxes on a comfortable massage table while the therapist stands above holding onto overhead bars and straps for balance and support, using their feet to deliver the massage. The advantage of this massage both for the client and the therapist is that Ashiatsu allows gravity to do the work, leveraging the therapists body weight to provide a depth unmatched by other techniques.
This technique can be fully clothed, unclothed and under the sheet and blanket, or with oil/ lotion on the skin.
We integrate these modalities together to have a balanced massage with therapeutics and relaxation!
